2017/2018 IFF ReMix International Student Fur Design Competition
Attention Fashion Department Faculty & Students
November 1, 2016 is the official kick off to the 2017/2018 IFF ReMix International Student Fur Design Competition! After over 15 years of successfully introducing the intricacies of fur fashion design to budding young design students around the world, the ReMix International Design Competition, the brainchild of the International Fur Federation (IFF), is an important and revered event within the larger fashion world.
We’d like to cordially invite your students to participate in this year’s exciting event. We’d also like to confirm that the IFF partnerships with Vogue Italia & Vogue Talents, full of cross-promotional exposure and opportunities, are continuing to shine a light on the best and most promising crop of international fur designers.
ReMix is about finding the best young fashion designers from around the world and showcasing their talents when working with fur. This global competition encourages, embraces, and promotes their pure creativity before entering the commercial fashion industry. Last year’s contest saw over 125 entries from 35 different schools from around the country; and we anticipate this year to be even bigger! We are honored to have sent numerous student designers onto the international competition in MiFur in Milan Italy over the years. Last year’s competition had Ari Naranchimeg, from Sanford-Brown College in Orlando, FL, going to the international competition in Milan to beautifully represent the U.S.A with her stunning white fox floor length wedding gown.
All entries submitted must be the work of the designer. Entries will only be accepted from design students who are currently studying, or have graduated from design school within 4-years from the date of entry to the competition.
